Africa: atlas of our changing environment

"Africa: Atlas of Our Changing Environment" provides compelling evidence of the extent and severity of such dramatic change over the past 30 years on the region's environment due to both natural processes and human activities. The atlas is the first major publication to depict environmental change in all of Africa's countries using satellite imagery. By telling a vivid, visual story of the dramatic impacts on the continent's landscapes, the atlas is a resource for remedial action at local, national, and regional levels.
